she was three years old and found wandering downtown Detroit in only a diaper All her life she s never known a home, never known or trusted in love Her goal at the start of the story is to keep going west through the Upper Peninsula U.P., eh to Wisconsin However, her car dies and also ends up abandoning her in the middle of Nowhere, Michigan during winter But along comes our hero, Mason Stricker, an ex cop, ex private investigator, who is back home to Chance Harbor for a second chance at life He makes it clear to the reader he has White Knight Syndrome and can t help rescuing damsels in distress But despite all his internal struggles, he swoops down, takes Roz back to his bar, and offers her a job.I was gripped by the beginning of the story Roz seemed like she had nowhere else to go and I was anxious to continue reading until I knew she would be okay Even though she seemed street smart and savvy, she didn t have a car, money, or the means to get anywhere We also learn that because of a learning disability that was never really explained she never graduated from high school There were so many ways her life could have gone, so many bad things that did and could have happened to her, but readers only learned of a few Even though I know writers aren t supposed to write too much backstory, I felt like this story could have used a touchdetails to make itbelievable real.For example, Roz thinks about how she never prostituted herself for a place to stay or food We all have to do what we need to in order to survive no judgements from me if she did , so what did she do The only details the readers have is she dropped out of high school at 18 years old and started travelling, but where did she go What did she do This all seems to be a mystery She s 26 years old at the beginning of the story What s happened in those 8 years I don t know need to know everything, but those years when she was on her own shaped her goals and motivations as much as her childhood in the welfare system And knowing those goals motivations would have increased the conflict between her and Mason It almost seemed like he she forgot every hurt he she ever had and they fell in love too quickly Her instinct when people got too quickly was to run away, to protect herself from love and the eventual broken heart, but because readers don t get those details, then there wasn t enough conflict keeping them apart, and their HEA happens with 20% of the book left to go Ms Braun is an excellent writer and the beginning of this story certainly had me transported to those horribly damp Michigan winters that I don t miss In the Shelter of His Arms taught me the importance of judicious application of backstory in manuscripts What an excellent read
